I don’t think it’s unfair to say that the season of 2018/19 is proving to be a mixed blessing for Tottenham Hotspur legend of the future, Son Heung-Min.

The 26-year-old’s season has been heavily influenced by the Asian Cup competition and potentially impending National Service hanging over the South Korean’s head, but thankfully that is no longer an issue with him helping his country to lift the title the other month.

Sonny has been largely off form though this year and in eight appearances for us so far, he is yet to find the net but plenty of fans are willing to talk about fatigue, and I’ll even raise the effect of the international buildup and maybe he’s inadvertently just slumped mentally meaning he’s not reaching his previous form.

Whatever it proves to be, if we ever know, his usual attitude and work rate will see him through it and although he didn’t set the world alight in his usual manner against PSV, with him having had a break now, we should get the benefit of that as he rebuilds sharpness.

In any event, whilst some of the comments are fair game given his form, I remain amazed at how quickly a few seem to have written him off.

I wonder how those with the slightly more extreme comments would mentally cope with impending National Service interrupting their personal life, freedom and employment and then how they’d react when it was no longer an issue. I’d guarantee they wouldn’t continue as if nothing had happened until it had all been fully processed.

I’m not a betting man, but I’d put money on it not being long before we see that bloke in the article image back celebrating that way.
